    I'm probably going to go to the gig.

    60 quids is steep, but the only time I saw them live before was at Download 2007 on the second stage, and the tent was so packed, I couldn't get close enough to even see them. :(
    I was at that gig too! Definately the most dangerous gig I've been to! When the gig started a gap of what seemed like two or three metres appeared in front of me as everyone surged forward. Was a great show though!
    Looking forward to the Olympia gig. Will be my 8th time seeing them so not getting to hear all the "hits" won't bother me. And I'm a big fan of the new album and looking forward to how it sounds live.

    That much for the Olympia!?

    Just booked tickets there for the April gig, though it is a bit pricey. I missed them the last time they were here though, and seeing as they were one of my favourite bands growing up, I felt I should see them this time. Tbh, I haven't properly listened to them in years (usual story, loved the older albums up to "Untouchables" ) but maybe I'll give the newer stuff a chance before I go to the gig. Judging from a setlist somebody posted up in Gigs&Events, it will be mostly new stuff they're playing, anyway. :-/

    I like their new album but the majority of stuff between Issues and ir has been very much hit and miss,couple of decent tracks here and there but overall very bleeghh.

    60 squids for a ticket though,not likely.I guess they are charging that because they will likely have no hassle selling it out.

    Jesus yeah, that was dangerous. The tent was literally falling apart, between the crowd both inside the tent and out I'd say it was double the capacity of the place.

    I'll be going to this (probably on my lonesome), just ain't got the money for a ticket yet.

    Love this pic of outside the tent while Korn were playing.

    It's good to see Korn are playing so many songs off the new album, shows how proud they are of and still enjoying making music. Also it a good change from there usual Greatest Hits Setlist.

    Agreed. If a band is touring a new album what they should be doing is showcasing the new material, while playing a few old favourites. Doing a "Greatest Hits" set on an album tour is an admission that an artist's best days are behind them and they're still making music just to pay the bills or fulfill a contract. Korn are as active and passionate about their music now as they were in 1994 and I'd much prefer to see them nailing the new stuff than phoning in the old.

    Though a sly bit of "Right Now" would be appreciated :pac:

    I'm so pleased the second stage at download isn't a tent anymore.

    Great Pic, but nowhere near as full as when Metallica played the tent at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon in 2003, we were 2/3ft from the front and it was fcukin bedlam. Evenascence played the main stage to about 15,000, security even stopped people leaving the main arena it was so bad.

    Here's the only vid on youtube of it, sends chills down me spine every time i watch it :D:D

    Got my ticket there today after listening to the new album. Some amazing songs on it. Very glad I gave it a chance.

    Rekindled my love affair with Korn in the last week or so and found some pretty cool vids on the youtubes.... this is from 93 or so before they got really big and you can tell from it they're a little bit different to anything else that was going on at the time... don't know wtf Jonathan Davis is wearing though! :P

    have me ticket sorted nd all! It'll be my 5th time seeing them!

    Is this the most recent thread on Korn?

    Time to revive it so!

    This band never really disappointed me. Still going strong! Sure older albums are the best imo, but I can't complain much about the most recent ones.

    A bit of nostalgia

    It's remarkable how unique they are.
    They really were fresh and like nothing else, and IMO, they continued to reinvent themselves.
    Sure I don't love everything they've done but they can't be accused of being by the numbers.

    Just started listening to some of the older albums again this week. Forgot how much I loved them

    This thing is pretty good too

    Really great band.

    One thing is they do not disappoint when it comes to their live shows. Since the early years they've consistently been solid live. When they were support to Slipknot in 2015 they really gave them a run for their money.

    1:25 mark when Blind kicks in still gives me chills to this day!

    Terry Bozzio is ****ing mental, epic kits. Brilliant on the tour with Fantômas, drumming with Zappa was great too.

    KoRn have always hit a soft spot with me. The were quite mainstream and considered somewhat 'Nu' back a decade ago, and I never dug any of that stuff, I didn't like their fans either, they reminded me of the type of fans Slipknot and Deftones have, bunch of whiny scene kids that are just a pain in the hole - but their music was cool. They had a heavy grainy sound that appealed to me, sometimes slow and sludgy, dragging every bit of heaviness from the note, then they had their uptempo bouncy riffs. That detuned wall of noise worked well with any KoRn riff. And as a bassist I have big props for Fieldy - a cousin of my cousin bought a custom K5 new a couple of years ago and was like "phwaorrrrr!", quite tempted to nick it still! :)

    Bozio is a lunatic:)
